The Nuclear Science Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in the Relativistic Nuclear Collisions (RNC) program.  

The RNC group has a strong involvement in both the physics analysis and instrumentation in experiments such as STAR, ALICE, sPHENIX, and the future EIC.  RNC has successfully led the Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT) development and physics analysis for the STAR experiment.  Currently, RNC is heavily involved in both the ALICE ITS upgrade and sPHENIX MVTX instrumentation.  Work on the future Electron-Ion-Collider has also started.  We develop both the instrumentation and analysistechniques to extend the reach of experimental nuclear physics.

The successful candidate is expected to work primarily on instrumentation development.  The initial work will be the development of MAPS sensors that will enable next-generation detectors in ALICE and EIC.  Tests both on the bench and in the beam for radiation effects are expected.

The opportunity to employ machine learning for sensor design and data analysis is open as well.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Fully engage in MAPS silicon tracker development.
  • Lead novel R&D in instrumentation and develop new physics cases that will benefit from beyond the state-of-the-art detectors and techniques.
  • Exercise independent judgment and contribute in an original manner at the professional level. 
  • Publish papers/reports in refereed journals, and make oral presentations of own work.
  • Report results to supervisor.

 

Additional Responsibilities as needed:

  • Physics data analysis and simulation.
  • May mentor undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Other duties as assigned.

 

What is Required:

  • Recent Ph.D. in nuclear/high-energy physics, or a closely related field.
  • Able to handle some FPGA programming and PCB work.
  • Experience with data collection and analysis in an R&D setting.
  • Proficiency in written and oral dissemination of scientific results.
  • Ability to work independently and in collaboration in a research environment.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.

 

Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience in readout and chiptest of CMOS pixel sensors.
  • Experience in IC design.
  • Ability to advise and coach graduate and undergraduate student assistants in research.

 

For full consideration, please provide the following application materials:

  • Curriculum Vitae.
  • Statement of research experience and interests (1 - 2 pages).
  • Reference Letters - Arrange to have 3 letters of reference sent to Dr. Yuan Mei at YMei@lbl.gov.

  

Notes:

  • This is a full-time, 2 year, postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 3 years of paid postdoctoral experience. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.
  • This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.
  • Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values at Berkeley Lab. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students, and staff who share our commitment to these values. Successful candidates for our faculty positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion.
  • Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
